You are invited to join our big family that has in its heart a philosophy of the Love and Harmony of great meetings. The Hostel is located in an old house wich has its own part in the history of the city. We are based literally in the heart of Rio de Janeiro. At the hostel we like to live by the culture we embrace, and we try to transmit it to every new member of our family.
To join the house, you need to speak English and Spanish (or Portuguese).
You will need to be willing to assist in some household chores besides the front desk work.
If you do some specific work as a web designer or work with art, talk to us too; we may be interested.
Each volunteer contributes to the house for maximum 24 hours per week for the reception, Morning or Afternoon.
Each volunteer is entitled to breakfast, a closet and a bed in a shared room. We also offer rice and beans (typical Brazilian food).
The hostel has partnered with the best parties in the city. They take place every day of the year, in the best clubs around the city. Our Volunteers pay nothing to enter and drink for free. And they also receive comission if they take guests.
Commissions also apply to volunteers in the sale of tour packages as well.
Important: We only accept volunteers who intend to stay with us for at least 1 months.
Let's hope you can be part of our team Good luck.

The cultural diversity of Rio de Janeiro is infinite. There are always events going on in the city, often also for free. There are plenty of museums and cultural centres.
Obviously there are the picturesque beaches. Rio is surrounded by hills where hikes can be done and beautiful views can be appreciated.
Botafogo area is surrounded by many museums and cultural life. While staying at the hostel you can benifit from language experience to get to live with people from all over the world. Rio de janeiro is an alive city and because you just have to help around 4 days per week it is also possible to take for example 3 days off and take a trip to Ilha Grande, a beautiful island located 4h away from Rio or travel to the mountains in Visconde de Mauá.
There are many more things that can be done. See you soon!
